himself, but since the movie dealt
with Hurok's L arly career, the
script called for the violinist to
appear in a 1911 sequence.
Suddenly, somebody realized
that Stern would be playing him-
self as an adult, nine years before
he was born. The result was that
Stern played the role of Eugene
Ysaye, a great violinist of that day.
Stern was one of the distin-
guished musicians from many
countries who received the honor
of an invitation to appear with
Pablo Casals at the 1950 Festival
at Prades, France.
Stern described the occasion as
"probably the greatest experience
of my life," and appeared with
Casals again the following sum-
mer in Perpignan and again in
Prades in 1952.
Stern was born July 21, 1920
in Kriminiesz, Russia. His parents
brought him to San Francisco
when he was a year old, and at six
began studying the piano.
Two years later he switched to
the violin and at the age of ten
entered the San Francisco Con-
servatory of Music. After his local
debut a year later, he made guest
performances under Pierre Mon-
teux's direction; later made ap-
pearances with the Los Angeles,
Portland, Seattle, Minneapolis and
He made his concert debut in
1937 and proceedeu to appear on
concert tours. With his Carnegie
Hall concert Ja-.. 12, 1943, Virgil
Thomson, New York music critic,
labelled him "one of the world's
master fiddle players."
Included on his program tomor-
row will bc works by Corelli,
Franck, Mozart and Paganini.
Tickets for the performance are
available at the offices of the Uni-
versity Musical Society in Burton
Tower. They are priced at $3,
$2.50, $2 and $1 50.

Somewhere on campus, grossly
misplaced, are the signs which
once identified front lawns of two
sorority houses here.
Presumably victims of fraternity
pledge pranks, members of the
houses are indignant over the loss
of the insignia, which earlier this
year bore the sororities' Greek-

New Sales High
Reported for SBX
A new sales record for this se-
mester's Student Book Exchange
was announced yesterday after
book sales closed.
Totals showed net sales to be
$8,907.39 for the five-day sale, ap-
proximately $1,200 more than the
previous high, according to the as-
sistant manager of the Exchange,

Students who turned in books to
be sold may pick up their checks
and unsold books from 8 a.m. to 5
p.m. Monday and Tuesday at

Both houses suspect neighboring
fraternities of the thefts.
Each of the signs was bought
and erected last fall. The Chi
Omega insignia, found missing
shortly after the rushing season,
was first to go. "For a while we
tried to find out who'd done it," a
member explained, "but nothing
came of it. By now we've just
about given up."
AOPi's had better luck. Their
sign, firmly soldered, hung to
mark the Oxford Rd. house until
members discovered its absence
after the semester vacation.
"We've narrowed it down to two
possibilities," according to Mary
Stuart, '56, "and we won't give up
until it's found." Miss Stuart ex-
plained that an older AOPi sign
was stolen several years ago, and

Prof. Lewis M. Simes of the Uni-

original rationale upon vhich the
legal policy against perpetuities is
In the second session of the an-
nual Cooley Lecture Series, he said
that perpetuities (restrictions of
the transfer of property which ex-
tends more than 21 years beyond
the death of a specified person)
are considered illegal in England
and in many of the states here.
The original policy of the law
was that alienability (the right to
transfer property) was necessary
to ensure productivity of the
property. Prof. Simes said that
this is no longer a sound reason
for the rule, because conditions
have changed so that now inalien-
able property is not necessarily

DONALD C. MILLER received his B.S. in Chei

1937. During the following month he started wo:
with the Organic Chemicals Department of Du Po:
at Deepwater Poinit, N. J. Since. then he has receive

Don Miller is a general superintendent at Du Pont'
Chambers Works-well qualified to answer question
about training programs for college men.
DRESSLAR M. PRUETT expects to receive his B.S. in Industrial Engi-
neering this summer from Oklahoma Agricultural and Mechanical Col-
lege at Stillwater, Okla. He is president of the local student branch of
A.I.I.E. Naturally, he is interested in selecting the best job opportunity
for a successful career based on his technical training.
Don Miller answers:
Training has many facets in a big firm like Du Pont, Dress,
and a great deal of thought has been given to make it truly
effective. We look upon training as a very important factor
in a man's career. We think that the best way to train a col-
lege graduate is to give him a maximum of on-the-job re-
sponsibility in a minimum length of time. That's the general
guiding policy at Du Pont, Dress.
Of course, each department varies this general policy to
suit its special needs. A new man being trained for produc-
tion supervision may first spend a year or so in laboratory
or plant development work. Or he may spend his training
period as a plant operator. Thus a man obtains firsthand
knowledge of his process, and establishes a bond of mutual
respect with the men he'll be working with on his first major

plant or laboratory dealing with the products he will later
sell; or he may join a group of trainees to learn selling tech-
niques right from the start.
